What would happen if you wore a Swatch watch today?

It’s a wonder those talented artists at Illustration Friday allow me in their group. The subject this week is CLIQUE.

A Swatch watch adds cache and the smell of plastic to your manicured hand.

"We see a lot of gentlemen turn their lives around with the right Swatch watch."

Remember when people thought wearing a Swatch watch meant you were in the “in” group? Well, I still think that way! I just love them, and I must have a dozen of them, mostly bought on ebay. I love the plastic, the colors, the really exquisite art work and design. They get the top designers in all areas to do work for these watches, and it shows.

The only downside is that after 3 or 4 years (or less or more) the plastic starts to crack on the band. :(  I wear them until they fall off, but it still makes me sad that they’re kind of human that way. Also, does anyone know of a store that sells them at discount prices? They cost way too much in the Swatch store in the mall in LA.

I don’t know if this man will join the clique with his watch, or get in the Fortune 500 now, but I bet he’ll be happy every time he looks down. (and so will I.)

    Ms. Barstow, do you sense that men think quite differently than do women?

    That was fun. But, enough of such silliness. Buh Bye.

    Yes, and that’s what makes it fun.

    Most of the time.
